About Cory McAbee:
Cory McAbee is best known as writer, director, songwriter and composer for the award-winning feature films, The American Astronaut (2001), Stingray Sam (2009), Crazy and Thief (2012) and as singer/songwriter for the internationally acclaimed musical group The Billy Nayer Show (19892011). In 2012 McAbee began the international arts collaborative, Captain Ahab's Motorcycle Club. From 2012 through 2014 McAbee performed concerts in support of the project throughout the US, Europe and Australia. From 2012 through 2015 McAbee wrote the screenplay for his first feature length opera, while illustrating his graphic novel series entitled RABBIT. In December of 2014 McAbee began recording and producing his first solo album entitled, Small Star Seminar. The Small Star Seminar was first performed live in Wroclaw, Poland in March, 2015.

A singing motivational speaker urges people to give up their goals, stop reaching for the stars and to start looking for the stars within their own minds. The performance features optimistic songs about quitting, accepting one's own limitations, the power of sitting quietly, and the theory of "Deep Astronomy". This project has been featured and developed in part through the Sundance Film Festival, NY Film Festival, Lincoln Center Film Society, Reykjavik Film International Festival, 36th Stage Songs Review (Wrocław, Poland) and Marfa Film Festival.

All performances are being documented for use in an upcoming feature film, written and directed by Cory McAbee. Audience participation is welcome.
